OK, I know I have killed this topic, but I just got back from dropping my boat off to get the pumps fixed, and the mechanic said that the fix is to change from a 500 cca battery to a 1000 cca battery... OK, I see where more power is better, but I was under the impression that certain guage wiring can basicly only hold "x" amount of current as apposed to "x%." Make sense? (I did not get a chance to ask the mechanic before I left). Anyway, he's promises this will solve the problem, but I'm not convinced yet.

The wire resists current from the battery that provides current. It is possible that a higher current battery will solve the problem. Yet, it also suggests that your alternator/battery combination is not adequate for this load for a long period of time. Not a huge worry unless you plan on running the pumps for extended periods of time.

The only real fix for those pumps.....replace them with another brand!
